With the growth of wind farms, users are turning to condition monitoring and automatic lubrication systems for increased reliability.

Introduced in August 2008, the Retroflo RPC_2000 Pump Control System was designed to control pump stations as a whole, rather than just the individual components within them. Through continuous dynamic monitoring of the characteristics through a range of wet well levels and pump speeds, the system uses the full range of pumping data available to optimize performance. It can be retrofitted to existing stations or installed in new stations.

Since municipal codes frequently deal with the most crucial areas of public life-covering the safety of life and property-it is understandable that preference is given to tools and methods that are "tried and true" over ones that are untested. The challenge becomes how to take advantage of new advances in technology while recognizing the importance of maintaining an uncompromising level of safety and security. The answer can lie in close cooperation between officials who champion the integrity of the municipal code system and individuals experienced in the implementation of innovative technologies.
